Championship side Huddersfield sack manager Fotheringham

Relegation-threatened Championship club Huddersfield on Wednesday sacked manager Mark Fotheringham after just four months in the job.

The former Premier League club, third from bottom of the English second tier, will begin the search for a new head coach after their winless league run was extended to five matches on Tuesday.

“Huddersfield Town can confirm that it has terminated the contract of head coach Mark Fotheringham with immediate effect,” the club said in a statement.

Fotheringham was appointed in late September following the sacking of Danny Schofield but the 39-year-old has been unable to turn around the club’s fortunes.

Huddersfield led twice in his final match at 10-man Blackpool on Tuesday but conceded a late equaliser to draw 2-2.

“To get yourself in a situation to take home three points, it’s absolutely unacceptable,” Fotheringham said after the match. “I’m lost for words to be honest.

“There’s a real collective anger in there. We all know that’s unacceptable and we’ve let the club down.”

Huddersfield, relegated from the Premier League in 2019, reached the Championship play-off final under former manager Carlos Corberan last season.
